Garden sofa, table and two chairs, Debenhams.
Was £570, now £285
‘We recently had our garden completely made over and the only thing we are missing is a comfy outdoor sofa set so we can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine! I would add a couple of bright outdoor cushions to this set, to add a splash of colour.’

Le Creuset 20cm casserole dish, Marks &
Spencer. Was £49.50, now £16.99
‘Who doesn’t love a bit of Le Creuset? This fabulous porcelain cast-iron cookware is a classic kitchen staple and looks especially gorgeous in smart pillar box red. You might need muscles to lift the stuff, but my it’s as pretty on the dining table as it is in the oven. There are lots of matching crocks to choose from, too. A great sales buy – it’s normally reassuringly expensive…’
Rachel Homer, Content Editor
Studio Drinks Trolley, Oliver Bonas. Was
£275, now £95
‘Looking for a statement style piece at a bargain price? This minimalist drinks trolley comes in a striking high gloss apricot finish that contrasts against its industrial style black metal frame.
It’s not only chic but versatile too; use it as a space-saving console table in your hallway or as a super-cool butler table for the kitchen.’
Tamara Kelly, Shopping Editor
Sequin Knotted Wool Rug, West Elm. Was
£499, now £299.95
‘A handcrafted rug is a real investment piece, therefore well worth holding out to secure it at sale price. I’ve fallen in love with the subtle blush pink on this design, it’s perfect to add a feminine touch to my bedroom – while the sequins added just enough glamour. A rug is an easy way to instantly transform a room, great for updating a decorating scheme on a budget or perhaps hiding floors that need a bit of TLC.’
Liz Stansfield, Web Editor
Exhibition Console Table, Loaf. Was £325, now £265
‘When I have the Dream House (aka a house with a proper entrance hall), this console table will take pride of place. The days of keys and piles of letters in the corner of my kitchen worktop will be gone and the Console Table of Dreams will keep everything tucked away, neatly topped off with a vase of blooms.’
